Q Griddle

Looks like the Kettle Q will just fit in my LBGE and easily in the XL.  Anyone have experience with the square ones?  I would like to get the largest cook surface that will fit on the XL.

    I gave mine to PhotoEgg. Did not care for it.

    I bought my square one years before they came out the the lighter weight round kettle one. Granted I don't use it too often, but it's another toy in my toy box! I really like it for breakfast as I can fry my bacon, eggs and pancakes in it with ease and fun to do besides! I find the ideal dome temp is 300 and then I close my bottom vent entirely. That seems to keep the temperature stable during the cooking time.

  • You might consider a baking steel which would be easier to store and clean.
  • Actually I already have these, which work pretty well, but was thinking the grease trap might be good.

    BTW - these clean up very easily though best done while still hot. During the cook though they immediately look bad like this. One trick I learned since then was to put a folded paper towel in that troff in front so when you scrape the debris off into it and add water clean up is a snap.

  • don't get it myself. I guess it would work but why not use a gas or an electric griddle ? its like whisking with a fork when there is a whisk in the drawer.

    Perhaps, Mike, but eggers like to do things different. Guess you probably wonder why I like to bake cakes in my eggs instead of our oven...the challenge and fun aspect gets in your blood - maybe you're just not there yet, but you will if you let it.

    Used it twice and just did not care for the clean up. Saw one being used by Spring Chicken and got one. Then just never used it and gave it away. Have several CI pans when needed that clean so much easier. Now don't go by me,I also gave away all my CI grates in favor of SS.

    Trust, me, Mickey...I understand, but honestly you gave up too soon, or maybe you bought it too soon. The first time or two I used mine it was a bear to clean, but then I studied more and found out clean up can be a breeze if done quickly while still hot. Is it really for everybody? H*LL NO!!!, but if you want to have more tricks going or toys to play with it is fun.
